The Princess and the Prick is a feminist humour and gift book for adults.
May I kiss you, he said. She didn't answer.
She was asleep. So he kissed her anyway.
Revisit childhood classics, but not as you remember them.
Familiar fables are turned on their heads as your beloved heroines finally have their say.
In a similar vein to the Ladybird for Grown-Ups and Enid Blyton spoof series, The Princess and the Prick flips fairy tales, nursery rhymes and children's books on their head.
Retold through a feminist lens as one liners, verses and rhyming couplets, and highlighting the sexism endemic in stories we grew up with, these classic tales will never be read in the same way again...
